the networks and the new york times and others have a real obligation to cover union violence when it occurs and not hide it. so i think you are raising a good point and it's one that we should be addressing and demanding that the president call on his allies to exercise discipline and civility. >> sean: all right. do you remember during the tea party rallies, you were speaking about the media. the media would search high and low and they would be looking for... something negative that the tea party movement was saying, usually, they were kids on their dad's shoulders and patriotic speeches, singing the pledge of allegiance and leave the place cleaner than when they found it. i ask you through this prism, as we compare this to the tea party, now, there was a vendor in the tent, a hotdog guy, been working there for 16 years. i interviewed this man on my radio program. they ruinedded his equipment and knocked over his food. >> they trampled the tent and everything i had. they were under the tent, tables, hotdog, hotdog buns, hotdogs, chili, all of my utensils and then they were saying, okay, m

the rights of unions. in fact, it was exactly that kind of scene michigan governor rick snyder, a republican, had said he wanted to avoid. in february, governor snyder looked at those other midwestern states with republican governors and workers protesting in the state capital and decided he did not want that thing in michigan, not in his historically very strong union state. governor snyder said, "you look at now that they've had those things happen, do they have a productive environment to solve problems? not necessarily. they're still overcoming the divisiveness, the hard feelings from all of that." at the time reporters wanted to know whether rick snyder would support what is known as a right to work law. the idea of right to work is simple. under a right to work law, employees of a union shop don't have to pay union dues. the employees get the benefit of the union, the higher wages and better health care, all of that, but they do not have to pay for it. why pay money if you can have something for free? for unions, the results of this are close to catastrophic which is why republicans an
